Bottle green and silver gray are the colors used for Psychological Operations units. The black scroll alludes to the organization's planning, production, and dissemination of civilian mass communications material. In conjunction with the sword it also refers to the unit's provision of propaganda support for the military command in various operational environments and to Civil Affairs in occupied or liberated territory. The Trojan Horse, identified with the use of subtlety and imagination in the accomplishment of military objectives, refers to the battalion's mission to conduct supporting psychological operations. The classification of propaganda by source is symbolized by black (source misidentified), stippled silver color (source concealed), and clear silver color (true source identified).
The crest is that of the U.S. Army Reserve.
The coat of arms was authorized on 16 Jun 1996.
